Test run yesterday. Spatchcocked a 5 lb bird. Brined it in salt, seasoning salt, soy sauce, brown sugar, garlic powder, and apple cider vinegar. Rubbed it with same dry ingredients but added Cajun seasoning and Chinese five spice. Injected it with dry ingredients but added melted butter.
Used my new ET 732 and can't imagine smoking without one. Used one piece of hickory and some plum wood. 1 hour and 15 minutes later, the breast was at 165. It went from 145 to 165 in no time. I would have pron but the kid and her friend started tearing into it as soon as it hit the table. I can't believe how easy it pulled apart! My daughter pulled the leg and the thigh came off with it! Not sure if that is a sign it was overdone but the food disappeared quickly.
This is the way I am going to do the turkey, but use the Hurricane rub/injection.
Whiskey makes everything better.
